Airport antics in China continue this week, though it wasn’t another display of public nudity or childlike tantrum. No, this time, it was a disabled man caught carrying his own severed leg through customs at Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport. The incident occurred on February 25 around 12:00, as the wheelchair bound Mr. Huang made his way through airport security in preparation for his flight to Chongqing. It was then that observant security guard Ou Yuming saw through the X-ray scan that a human leg was packed inside his luggage case. Mr. Huang stated that he had recently lost his leg in an accident, and that in accordance with his family’s traditions, he wanted to transport it back to his hometown so that when he died his whole body would be buried as one. Makes sense right? Well, Huang was obviously forbidden to take his leg on board, and has been told he has to apply for the correct permit from a hospital should he wish to transport his leg back to Chongqing.
